They say no news is good news, but with everything negative going on no one wants to even watch the news anymore so no news really IS good news.

Until this.

Brian Williams (NY) asked for some “good news” to be sent to the station.  He got a lot of it.


See? There are really good things going on out there.

Just yesterday, as I left my office for lunch, I noticed one of my co-workers in the parking lot struggling with the headlight on her car. The bulb had gone out.

I fixed this MANY times in my old Nissan (like every 100 days – enough that I’d buy the bulbs in multi packs…)

I asked if I could help and quickly had the old light out and the new one in. I saved her $20, but I also saved her time, effort, and I’m not going to lie, it wasn’t warm outside.  We live in fricken Upstate NY for crying out loud.

It was easy to do something for someone else. It took me a whopping 3 min to do it and it fricken made her day.

She brought me a gift card to Dunkin Donuts. Very unnecessary and I told her that – but she insisted.

I only really buy something at Dunkin Donuts on Sundays if I stop for the paper on the way to swimming lessons so $10 should last me at least a few stops.

I’ll put that $10 I don’t spend this month at Dunkin Donuts into my ING account.


What little things have you done to help someone lately?
